Odubajo and Smith both face late checks

Orient’s teenage defender Moses Odubajo and midfield man Jimmy Smith both face late fitness tests before tomorrow’s match at Carlisle United.

The duo were both substituted during Wednesday night’s FA Cup win at Gloucester City with minor knocks.

O’s boss Russell Slade will leave selection until late, but hopes that both will be available for the Brunton Park clash.

Ben Chorley and Kevin Lisbie look set to return to the starting line-up after dropping to the bench for the FA Cup game, while defender Leon McSweeney stands by to deputise for Odubajo if he fails to make it.
